Ticketing policies vary by event.

Our goal in producing this first issue is to encourage our students in Veritas University, to incorporate topics related to Gender, Diversity and Inclusion, Technology, Culture, etc.
Students in Veritas have never got an opportunity and a platform to spread and talk about ideas that concern and affect them the most. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, a special room is provided for us to learn new things, unlearn what we already learned, and most importantly relearn.
Nigeria has been facing a lot of security challenges irrespective of the global pandemic. We still believe that the chance we have as young people to make change is now.
Our Time! Our Turn! Our Unlimited Future!
